Pine Tree Ballads book

Pine Tree Ballads is a poetic memoir—part visual narrative of family myths and part origin story. Unexpected material and production choices—such as foilstamped end sheets, diecut interior pages, and signatures wrapped with uncoated colored paper—support the sense of mystery and magic in the work. The cover is stamped with a drawing by the author’s daughter.
